Curl up in a book nook!

Here at EMFURN, we are major bookworms! We love curling up with a good story and letting our imaginations soar. We read on the train and we read on the bus, but there’s nothing better than getting home, finding a quiet space, and enjoying a brilliant book. We are always searching through magazines, books, and the web to find examples of idyllic cozy spots to read, and we thought that it was about time that we shared them with you! So take a look at some of our favorite book nooks.

Barcelona Chair

Tucked away in the corner of the room, this special reading spot is bright and super smart. With a bookshelf close at hand next to a classic Barcelona Lounge Chair and Ottoman, we can just imagine this being the perfect place to relax.


Now this book nook can’t fail to spark your imagination. We don’t know exactly where this room is located but we are pretty sure it’s in a bookshop and we are certain that it’s a place we’d love to visit! With fairy lights, a cool mural, and a blanket to wrap up warm, this is a cozy winter nook.

Bookshop for kids

Although we’d love to curl up in this special space, we don’t think that we’d quite fit. However, for children, it’s really super. Converted from an old closet, there’s just enough space for a little one to settle down and have some quiet time, as they travel away to distant lands with some brilliantly quirky characters.

Books in staircases

So many books, so little time! This staircase is packed to the brim with stories. A library in the stairs sounds like a work of fiction in itself! Just imagine sitting down to read a few pages, during those precious moments of alone time

Prefer to read together rather than on your own? A peaceful interior with white and brown combination looks beautifully serene, and a lovely area to gather with your friends or loved ones as you both settle down with a brilliant story. Comfy leather armchairs surrounding a large cozy ottoman? Bliss!

Bedroom surrounded by bookshelves

Last but not least is this fabulous space. This bedroom is surrounded by bookshelves packed with books of every shape and size. We adore reading in bed, so this is a fantastic little reading nook!
